A Chance to Help a Child in Need

Did you know that about 3-4% of 4 million school children in Sri Lanka have some kind of vision related issue? Many of them are nearsighted (Myopia and Astigmatism), according to the Association of Community Ophthalmologists of Sri Lanka (SLACO). Karuna Trust believes that all children deserve perfect vision. However, there are many students in underprivileged areas whose parents can’t even afford one pair of eyeglasses.

Karuna Trust has conducted several eye clinics and donated eyeglasses for students in the past. This year, Karuna Trust and SLACO are providing similar clinics to help 500 students. They will initially train teachers to screen students who have vision issues. Then, an optometrist will examine the students and prescribe the lenses. The cost estimated per pair of glasses is approximately $10 per child.

We hope you will take part in this worthy cause by covering the cost of as many students as you can. You could make a significant change in a child’s future. Please, don’t let this opportunity to make a positive change in the Sri Lankan community go to waste. We plan to conduct the clinic on March 10, 2018. Everything and anything counts, so help a student reach their potential today!

The President of Sri Lanka, Mr. Maithripala Sirisena, made the occasion even more grandiose by attending the awards ceremony to commemorate Mr. Karunarathne’s achievement. Though several other citizens were also recognized for various categories in the same ceremony, Mr. Karunarathne was commended for wonderful philanthropic efforts in the province such as the restoration of large irrigation tanks, building houses for the poor, facilitating scholarships for school children, and building schools.
